DIY Remote Control Holder Instructions:

  1. Cut felt to your desired size—I used 15" x 25". You may want wider or longer based on your couch size, and the number of pockets that you’d like to create.

  1. Trim the fabric to fit the width of felt, and at least 3/4 the height of your tallest remote. Hem upper edge.
  2. Lay fabric over felt, then sew the outer edges & bottom edge to create a large pocket. Be careful to NOT sew the upper edge.
    Tip: Don’t worry about raw edges. We’ll deal with those at the end!
  3. Create the desired number of pockets by stitching over the top of the fabric. Using a zigzag stitch will ensure that the pockets are strong.
  4. Use Fiskars Pinking Shears to trim all sides. This will reduce fraying, and eliminate the need to hem all edges.
  5. Fold the top edge of the felt and straight stitch to create a pocket for the wooden dowel. Slip the dowel through.
  6. Lay the DIY remote control holder over the furniture arm, tucking the dowel between the cushions to help secure it.

Having an easy to sew holder for several remote-control devices would simplify TV watching for sure. The remotes seem to have a life of their own and travel to unexpected places. I like that the directions indicate to use a dowel rod in a pocket on the opposite end from the remotes to keep the holder nicely tucked down in the chair or sofa.

This will be an awesome Father's Day project!

What a cute idea! I love the flannel print. This would be great to make for the fall when people are indoors more and watching more TV!
